A fabulous subject, I tried to show him as sly, cunning and ever so slightly amused.
My career in primary teaching and as an art/design specialist allowed me to learn to use and experience a wide range of materials, media and form to express my ideas. I illustrated for Flutewise magazine for 20 years. I have been using pastels most recently, and find their versatility, wide colour range and the way they link drawing and painting, suit my style of work. I focus mainly on portraiture or both people and animals.
